An engagement ring has been a symbol of love for centuries. However, plans can be made but circumstances change, relationships end, and there may come a time when an engagement is broken off, leaving behind an engagement ring that neither wants. When this happens, the best step to take can be unclear. Selling the ring is often the best option, but people often reach out to businesses that don’t have their best interests in mind. At Diamond Lighthouse, we work for our customers. Every engagement ring we receive is examined by a GIA certified, expert gemologist. Our evaluations are strictly impartial. Working in tandem with industry professionals who fully understand the diamond market and current trends, we are able to help you realize the absolute highest value for your engagement ring. We don’t buy diamonds to sell. We act solely as a broker. We take a commission from the sale (10% for diamonds 1 carat and higher), so we always strive to get you the most money possible. We work with a large network of diamond dealers who are searching for an engagement ring just like yours.
The selling process is straightforward. Just send your engagement ring to us in our secure, fully insured FedEx packaging or schedule an in-house appointment and bring your engagement ring to our offices. Once the ring has been thoroughly examined by our gemologists, we’ll reach out to our network and let them know your engagement ring is available. Our network then places competitive bids on your ring, which you can view in a personal online portal. You are in 100 percent control of every step of the process, and, you are free to select the highest offer (or request to have your ring shipped back, free of charge). Once you accept an offer, we close the sale and send you the money quickly. We have over 20 years of experience in evaluating jewelry, and our appraisals come from industry experts.
